The new releases include frozen plant-based nuggets, meatballs and ‘chicken’ patties, as well as fresh Smokehouse Burgers and ground turkey alternatives.
According to Planterra, the Ozo Frozen Nuggets contain 14g of protein per serving, while the plant-based Chicken Patty contains 12g of protein. Meanwhile, the plant-based Italian Style Meatballs reportedly contain 12g of protein and 30% less saturated fat than pork meatballs.
Elsewhere, the company claims that the new fresh plant-based Ground Turkey contains 22g of protein, and the fresh Smokehouse Burger offers 19g of protein per serving.
Darcey Macken, CEO of Planterra Foods, said: “We’re continuing to expand the plant-based category by offering family favourites that can easily be introduced into meal routines.
“We’re thrilled to be adding these new plant-based proteins in the fresh and frozen categories that offer more opportunities for flexitarian consumption through high-quality foods with positive protein solutions.”
All five new products are now available nationwide from selected retailers in the US, with a suggested retail price of $5.99-7.99 per unit.
